Last Night's Raw: Thoughts and Prayers with Jerry Lawler

Rating: 2 votes, 4.50 average.
Hey fans. Savior here. The tone of this blog is going to be a little down, for obvious reasons. I will start by saying that I think New Jack needs to get out of his mom's basement and grow the hell up. Jerry Lawler is a legendary figure in wrestling, a little respect is in order. I'm sure everyone is with me when I say our thoughts and prayers are with Jerry Lawler.

Now, I watched the opening segment of Raw because I heard Bret Hart was gonna be there. I figured he would open. I figured Punk would come out and disrespect him. Now, Bret Hart is the absolute best in my mind. Just not when it comes to cutting promos. He can't hang with Punk, but Punk is out of his mind with saying he's better than Bret. *I'm sure someone who I argued with on the forum last week is laughing to himself right now, as am I*. He drew nice heat with that.

I've also been captivated with this Daniel Bryan and Kane thing. It is funny So my brother alerted me to their segments. I watched their match where they won. Then the sad news came.

I watched from there on out, simply because I was worried that it may have been the last time I see Jerry Lawler. Then I thought to myself. That's why I tune in when the legends are around. Those guys who made me a wrestling fan to begin with. Guys like Jerry Lawler, Bret Hart, Roddy Piper. I love finding out when there's going to be segments with Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Sgt Slaughter, and Dusty Rhodes. Because we never know when we won't see them again, as was evident at last night's Raw, we may never hear Jerry Lawler again. Heart Surgery is not something you just come back from in two weeks. Retirement may be in order here. And it's sad that it had to be this way. Now if there are people who are going to comment and say things like, "well, maybe they can finally bring Regal in for color commentary", I implore you to keep your comments to yourself. Because I don't wanna hear that crap. If they do bring Regal in to replace him, fine. But I refuse to be happy about the circumstances. So keep that crap to yourself.

One more shout out. I have full admirmation for Michael Cole. He did a fantastic job keeping us updated. He was a pure professional in the situation. He had to break kayfabe and never went back to it for the rest of the night. I applaud him 100%...and this comes from someone who absolutely hates him.

Now the closing segment was something of beauty. I'm setting myself up for slaughter here, but I thought John Cena was brilliant in that final segment. I feel CM Punk is starting down the Bobby Roode route. He's whining, it's all about respect him, he has IT, blah blah blah. All the same crap we hear from everyone who thinks they should be champ. It's so played out, it's laughable. Cena killed it on the mic last night and there's no denying that. He laid into Punk, Punk tried to talk back just to have the mic slapped out of his hand, he was called an Ignorant Son of a Bitch, and he was gonna get his ass kicked.

Now, not sure what's gonna happen at Night of Champions. Everyone wants Punk to win because everyone hates Cena, but if it does happen, it'll be because of interference or some sort of screwjob or something. However, it unfortunately spells the beginning of the end of CM Punk's cred as champion. After clean wins in feuds over Daniel Bryan and Chris Jericho to define his year as champ, he's now gonna be relegated to dirty, watered-down wins until he ultimately loses to The Rock at Royal Rumble, IF, he keeps the title that long. I say if, because everything John Cena said last night, was ultimately true. As champ, he's seen Main Event after Main Event pass him by. Why? Because WWE had Cena headlining. But there's more to that Why question. Cena headlines, because Cena draws. Punk obviously does not, or else he would be headlining. So I say IF, he holds the belt until Royal Rumble, because there's opportunity up and down. Cena can fued with ADR, (we all know how much WWE loves him, so we'll be forced to get him), Cena can feud with Daniel Bryan. (Okay, could be a good thing. Though Bryan won't hang and just be another Super Cena victim). But ultimately, because Cena vs Rock 2 will bring in more buys to the Royal Rumble, then Punk/Rock would. To the IWC who hates Cena, I know it sucks, but it IS reality.

Anyway, I just wanted to throw out some thoughts about the first Raw I actually watched more than 10 minutes of since I gave up on WWE back in July. I hope you enjoyed this blog. Feel free to comment below, love me or hate me, but keep any negativity about Lawler and the announcing situation out.

God Bless Jerry Lawler. We're all pulling for a safe recovery.

Take Care Everyone.

    This may sound strange, but bear with me on this: in many ways, the King's heart attack could not have happened at a better time. While the stress of being in a match 30 minutes before was certainly not helpful, it seems that the heart attack was a question of 'when' not 'if' it happened. He collapsed during the live show where he received immediate medical aid within seconds. He could not have been in a better place to have a heart attack than to actually be in a hospital emergency room. The sad issue is that the nature of the business is that most talent and staff of WWE are on the road for much of the time. Had he collapsed in his hotel room, it is highly likely that he would have died there and then, with medical aid coming too late. I cannot help but think that if Eddie Guerrero had collapsed at an event, rather than alone in his hotel room, he might still be with us today. There is no question that Jerry Lawler has received and will continue to receive the very best care.
    This is exactly what I n my friend have discussed earlier today....

    The only thing, burning me is whining of Punk...he has become a whining heel which is negating all his great reign...they should have made him look strong...

    hopefully, this whining of him is just to tease Cena is the better man..but, in the match Punk may actually beat Cena cleanly...

    This feud is interesting only to see whether Punk wins or not and again..if he wins...will it be a clean win or not...I guess, Punk should win it cleanly....n that makes him a bigger n louder heel...which will be stopped by The Rock at Royal Rumble...

    First all of you who did not say a thing about the King, be ashamed cause more then the entertainment provided by the broadcast last night the bigger picture is the health and well being of Jerry Lawler. Second it is amazing to read articles and blogs online tearing into who ever they dont like, they try to back up their reasons in facts and provided slanted statistics and antedotes to prove their points. We all fall victim to the propaganda of the wwe whether we think we do and whether or not we want to admit it. Cena has the demographic targeted to the younger viewers and the parents of the younger viewers so those in their mid twenties hate him cause he is what they wish they could be, the pretty boy with far to many muscles and who wins all the time. Where as punk is targeted to the audience because he isnt much to look at and he is the constant underdog who is fighting to work out where he stands in the company even though he is becoming the best wrestler in the company.
    SO PLEASE LEAVE YOUR BIAS OUT OF YOUR THOUGHTS, IT IS ENTERTAINMENT. (and yes i know i have my own biases so please dont tell me that) Only those in control of wwe know what is actually going on, all that people like us can do is watch and enjoy and send all the best wishes to The Kind

    Who are you telling to be a shamed? I feel I touched on the King appropriately in this blog. I will be posting another one in pure honor of The King later this week. Thoughts and Prayers go out to Jerry Lawler and his family. I clearly stated this along with my appreciation not just for him, but for all legends who made it so we can actually enjoy wrestling today.

    I'm not a shamed at all. The discussion gravitated toward Cena vs Punk, and that was not my doing. I did right by the situation, and other than Jabroni who is stuck on this Cena/Punk thing, you're the only person to have shot something negative in my direction about this.

    I was directing it toward all of the ppl who had posted comments just dragging on about the same about punk/cena drama, where that was not even the main point of the orginal blog

    Ah, okay. I must have misunderstood the comment. My bad.

    Thanks for reading.

    I wasn't dragging on anything man. I was just responding to someone's point. No offense but there is no need to make that debate between me and Jabroni out of a big deal when it was just us discussing our points on the Cena/Punk feud. And I have already expressed my concerns for Lawler. I'm happy we are hearing more positive news about Lawler's health and I hope he takes his time to take care of himself.
